Meet Our Facilitator


Fort Dodge AMP Facilitator!  

Ira Shivers was born and raised in Fort Dodge, IA to the late Reverend James and Tommie Mae Shivers. As the child of a Baptist preacher, faith and family was the foundation Ira and his nine brothers and sisters focused their life upon. Throughout life, Ira faced many barriers and struggles that has gave him an understanding when it comes to the youth today. Ira had the opportunity to take the Culinary Arts program at Fox Valley Technical College. Growing up watching his mom and grandma cook for family, friends and neighbors, Ira had a passion for cooking and jumped at the chance. He completed his Culinary Arts degree with honors. He later received his Associate of General Studies from Iowa Central Community College. In 2012, Ira was united in marriage to his wife Jenny. Their families blended and together they have five adult children and three grandchildren. Shortly after getting married, Ira and Jenny opened a diner in town called TC Mae’s. It quickly branched off into a food truck also. Both are still up and running successfully today! It’s has been with the Youth Shelter for almost a year. He states the favorite part of his job is interacting with the youth and hopefully instilling in them tools and knowledge they can use in their futures. He is eager to grow and be able to reach more youth through the AMP program.
